Juday breaks Tipton girls scoring mark

Tipton senior passes sister on scoring list.

Tipton senior Kacie Juday scored 23 points to become the program’s all-time leading scorer in a 77-47 victory over Tri-Central Wednesday night, passing her sister Brooklyn for the career mark.

“I couldn’t have done it without my teammates all four years,” Kacie said. “It was even neater to pass my sister. It was like a record she passed down to me [to break], I guess you could say. I actually didn’t know how close I was because I didn’t want the pressure, so I asked [Brooklyn] and coach [Nick Comer] not to tell me. My sister has wanted this for me forever and has always encouraged me to beat it.

“It’s nice to not have the pressure anymore. We’re ready for the team to win some championships, and I’m ready to help them do that.”

Brooklyn, who now plays at the University of Pennsylvania, scored 1,189 points from 2009-12. Kacie, Stony Brook University recruit, scored on a layup on Tipton’s first possession of the fourth quarter to pass her sister, and now stands at 1,191 career points.

“Her maturation over the last four years, from a coaching standpoint, has really been a joy to watch,” Tipton coach Nick Comer said of Kacie. “To see her physically evolve as a player and emotionally evolve as a person, of all my years of coaching, is one of the things I will take away having the most positive memories of.”

The Class 2A No. 6-ranked Blue Devils (9-3) raced out to a 25-10 lead at the first stop and took a 47-26 lead into the half before holding the Trojans to five points in the third quarter to go up 63-31.

Kacie Juday also added a game-high 10 rebounds in the win. Macie Lively added 17 points and four assists for the Blue Devils, while Molly Mahaney added 11 points and Lela Crawford added 10 points to the victory cause.

He is an open wheel racing standout who never blows his own horn and is embarrassed by the attention he receives for being considered one of the top sprint car drivers in the country.
